This week, we got the chance to chat with Kate Spencer, co-host of Forever35 and author of the memoir The Dead Moms Club. We talk about her first novel In a New York Minute (which is a Grace approved romance BTW!) discuss her writing process, and she shares her advice for aspiring writers.
We discuss how she got to where she is today, her desert island beauty picks, the books she’s loving right now, and of course, Wordle.
You can find Kate at @katespencer on Instagram, @katespencerwrites on Tik Tok, and @forever35podcast and preorder In a New York Minute! Listen to Forever35 podcast
